No questions of a ‘‘sensitive’’ nature are asked, and the collection of information involves no proprietary information. We intend to release data collected on Form MMS–131 only in a summary format that is not companyspecific. We will protect the information according to the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR 2). Frequency: The frequency is annual, with responses due during the 1st quarter of the calendar year. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 130 Federal OCS oil and gas or sulphur lessees and we expect a 27 percent response rate. Estimated Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: We estimate the public reporting burden averages 8 hours per response. This includes the time for reviewing instructions, gathering and maintaining data, and completing and reviewing the information. The total annual hour burden is estimated to be 280 hours. Estimated Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: We have identified no ‘‘nonhour cost’’ burden associated with Form MMS–131. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) requires each agency ‘‘* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information * * *’’ Agencies must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. To comply with the public consultation process, on June 1, 2007, we published a Federal Register notice (72 FR 30624) announcing that we VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:19 Dec 17, 2007 Jkt 214001 would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day comment period. In addition, § 250.199 provides the OMB control numbers for the information collection requirements imposed by the 30 CFR Part 250 regulations and forms; specifies that the public may comment at any time on these collections of information; and provides the address to which they should send comments. This information is also contained in the PRA statement on Form MMS–131. We have received no comments in response to these efforts. If you wish to comment in response to this notice, send your comments directly to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by January 17, 2008. Public Comment Policy: Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

E7–24493 Filed 12–17–07; 8:45 am] to the unusually high number of bids received in this lease sale. DATES: The post-sale evaluation period ends on January 1, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Marin, Regional Supervisor, Resource Evaluation, Gulf of Mexico Region, telephone 504–736–2710. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Central Gulf of Mexico Sale 205, held October 3, 2007, we received 1428 bids on 723 tracts, 616 tracts of which passed to a second phase requiring additional detailed evaluations. The aggressive bidding activity is due, in part, to the high number of quality prospects on recently expired unexplored tracts in newly established deepwater hydrocarbon plays and to the cost saving technological advances related to hydrocarbon exploration and development in the Gulf of Mexico’s deepwater environment. The unusually high number of bids received on a large number of tracts, and the high volume of exclusively reprocessed data identified on Sale 205, significantly increases the workload for reviewing the adequacy of bids. Consequently, MMS is unable to conduct and complete the bid review process within the 90 days, i.e., by January 1, 2008. Under the provisions of § 256.47 (e) (2), MMS is extending the bid evaluation period until February 15, 2008. Dated: November 26, 2007. Lars Herbst, Regional Director, Gulf of Mexico OCS Region.
